A second FO today! *faint*

Well, would you believe it? A second finished object to show y'all today! Shocking, I know!! *grin*

I've been very productive tonight! I got home on time for the first time in oh...2 years! So, I whipped up a batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies to take into work tomorrow for my former team mates who are busy working on the budget...I don't miss that one at all! But since I kept them all fed last year (while working 12-14 hour days last year I would still manage to bake at least one cake, brownie or cookie each week...sometimes two for a period of 2 months! Insane, I know! But baking is very therapeutic and stress relieving for me. I did other things besides sweets too - muffins and breads for examples) I thought that I should at least bring them in something once - are I not the nicest? lol So here's the cookies cooling away on my table:

Now on the FO - one of Donna's ever so wonderful Jute Baskets!! Vera sent me some jute, and tonight I decided to whip one up. They worked up really quickly, but I must say that my poor thumb is throbbing right now! I think that I hold my hook oddly, and it rubs really badly on my right thumb! I will do another one or two with the rest of the soon as I can find more beads!

Only one week now until my parents are on their way to visit! I can not wait! Our plans right now are to go to Paris and Rome, as well as me sending them to a few cities around Belgium while I am working a day or two! I can not take that much time off right now...especially since I am going to need to take 2 days off to go to Ireland with Zori for her birthday!

I just realize while re-reading my post for errors that I use an awful lot of exclamation points when I am writing....I think that Cordelia is wearing off on me!! LOL

I can almost smell those cookies all the way over here! They look absolutely yummy! I love baking as well, just rarely get to do it. I do have bananas that are browning really nicely though! Looking forward to making that banana cake of yours tomorrow. Guess I should make sure I have all the ingredients!

And I love your jute basket! Where do you get jute from, anyways?

You should be able to get Jute from Walmart in their garden secion I believe...or any gardening type place etc.... perhaps a hardware store love Home Depot might have it???? I am guessing here since the lovely and wonderful Vera sent me mine!

And your jute basket is wonderful, well worth the sore thumb!
